MDP Releases New Bob Young Video, Shows How He Abused Power
WSU Law Professor Talks About Study of Michigan Supreme Court and How Justice Young Ruled Ideologically
 
LANSING – A Wayne State University law professor says Justice Bob Young acted improperly on the bench. According to Professor Robert Sedler, Young and other GOP Justices ruled time and time again to protect insurance companies and corporations over victims and Michigan residents.
 
“This is not the way a court is supposed to function,” Sedler said of his research of the Court during the period of 1999-2008. “They (GOP Justices) had a view and I think that view was wrong and I think that has been very harmful to the development of the law in Michigan.”
 
Sedler says the Court overturned 34 cases in 10 years siding repeatedly with insurance companies and corporations over the people of Michigan.
 
“If there was a Guinness Book of World Records for overruling of decisions in a limited period of time, the Michigan Supreme Court from 1999 to 2008 would set the record,” he said.

    Serving as a school board member is one of the most important responsibilities a citizen can undertake. You, if elected to serve, and your fellow board members will establish educational goals that will help shape the future of your community and society.

    Being a board member is a complex and varied job, sometimes frustrating as you struggle long hours with problems that never seem to be resolved. But it also is rewarding as you watch students achieve, succeed and lead happy, productive lives as a result of an environment you'll help to provide.

    School board members are charged, by law, with providing quality education for the youth of your community. You should work for the best interests of all pupils and all citizens, a task requiring constant effort and a strong commitment to serving other people. If you are truly interested in devoting your time and talents to meeting this challenge, your local school administration and your state school boards association applaud your decision to run for election and wish you the best of luck. We stand ready and willing to serve you.
